I’m not selling you anything here, but my hope is to sell you on something … anything lifestyle medicine. Why? Because our lifestyle can be our best medicine, a tonic always within our reach. But it can also be our largest obstacle preventing us from being well. My patients have shown me firsthand the positive impact that lifestyle medicine can have on our health and well-being. For my own healthcare, and my families’, lifestyle medicine is our first choice and a top priority!
Here’s a hard truth: our lifestyle can be a significant factor in the development of a chronic disease. And our habits can be the most difficult things for all of us to change.
Change is always possible, but it’s not always easy. It’s a step-by-step continuum that sometimes feels like two steps forward and one step back. But with the best knowledge, tools, and hacks, I believe it’s the way to a fulfilling and healthy life.
Our activities can turn off or on the expression of our various genes. These activities are centered around the five core pillars of lifestyle medicine.
